5 Benefits of a #30DayLifeDetox

tumblr_npi3onnWMe1r1tfh9o1_500

Hello, it’s me…lol

Over the past 30 days I have been on what I call a “life detox.” After discovering some extremely disappointing truths, I found myself slumping into a negative headspace. I slowly started to spiral out of control due to letting my emotions govern my actions. And it was obvious to anyone that saw me both in person, or on social media. I needed more than just a hand wave in front of my face to snap me back into the present. I needed to really focus, and channel my emotions inward to get back to the woman I used to know.

Interviews That Give Life: Transformational Relationships

Last week a friend shared the interview below with me and it really spoke to me. If you are currently reevaluating the relationships in your life (be it romantic, friendship, or professional), this interview is for you too… It’s a little long but so worth it!

Some of my favorite quotes from the interview:

  • “People are like elevators. The right people will take you up, and the wrong people will take you down.”
  • “The worst thing you can give someone is what they used to need.”
  • “Secret places always lead to secret battles that lead to secret honey.”
  • “Some people abort their future on the altar of their past.”
  • Greatest relationship mistake: Too much + Too soon + Too freely = A Disaster
  • “Value is assessed by what you are willing to sacrifice.”
  • “The Holy spirit will lead us into our truth.”
  • “You cannot trust a person that will not show you their wounds.”
  • “You need a partner, not a project.”

After watching this interview, I for sure need to get my hands on Van Moody’s book, “The People Factor: How Building Great Relationships and Ending Bad Ones Unlocks Your God-Given Purpose.” Cyber book club anyone?! 🙂

As Seen on SnapChat: Cooking with Britt

IMG_4960If you’re a regular snapper you know that almost EVERYONE turns into a master chef when they’re cooking on SnapChat. The playlist is usually either super sexy or super ratchet and impressive plating is a must – major keys in the production LOL. (seriously) But I have to admit it is one of my guilty pleasures too. So here we are, letting my snap live on on my blog forever.

On the Menu:

Honey Shrimp

Sriracha Green Beans

Jasmine Rice

Can you believe we are in February of 2016 already!? It’s scary how fast the days and weeks fly by! It feels like we were just celebrating Christmas and New Years yesterday… Seriously.

Anyways, I wanted to start a new “series” where I post my current favorite things at the end of each month. I always see a lot of bloggers doing this and really enjoy their posts so why not chime in too!

The things that truly interest me now are almost mind-boggling when I look at where I was mentally just a few years ago. Not to say that I am a completely different person (because I still replace dinner with cereal, buy “pack panties”, and argue with my 16 year old sister like I’m in high school too LOL) but a lot has changed for sure!

Here my top 10 moments when I realized I’m “getting old”:

Holiday Party OOTN

Over the weekend I attended my company’s holiday party at Cuvee  lounge in Chicago, IL. I was a little skeptical at first given the low ratings on Yelp, but ended up having a BLAST! The DJ was on point, there was plenty of seating, and the drinks on the special menu were so good!

Anywho, I decided to do a quick post on my Outfit Of The Night (OOTN) and glam because I was so pleased with how it all came together. Continue reading “Holiday Party OOTN”

Great Gift Ideas for Him

HGG_for him

Last week I gave out 5 Beauty Gift Ideas for Her, so this week I decided to return the favor for the guys – sometimes it can be a little difficult shopping for the man (or men) in your life no matter how nonchalant they seem! Plus, we are about 2 weeks away from Christmas and if you are still stumped, hopefully this post can help you.

New Year, [Improved] Me!

A lot of people feel like New Year’s Resolutions are pointless “because you can choose to be better any day” (which is true) but some folks need that hard reset to continue revamping themselves against a new timeline – it’s like starting a diet at the beginning of the week rather than a Thursday or Friday… because who does that, right!? Can you tell that I’m one of those people? lol  Continue reading “New Year, [Improved] Me!”
